  • Wax, metal plates, trestles

Spherical wax sculptures created through techniques such as pouring, dipping, kneading, and all hand formed. While varying in shape and size, they all have a hollow shell like a cocoon. In the past, wax was an essential basic commodity—not only in the convent, where these sculptures were exhibited. The material, with its rich tradition, was repurposed, whereby its reshaping was only possible through the addition of warmth. The title refers both to the material and to the production process.
